When does exchange of contracts take place for residential conveyancing in Hockley and do I need to be at the lawyers branch?
Where you are local to one of the conveyancing solicitors in Hockley you are invited in to sign the paperwork. However, the firms we work with supply a national conveyancing service and give just as diligent and professional a job for you when communicating with you electronically. The executing of the purchase agreement is not when everything is set in stone. A signed contract is just a prerequisite for the firm to exchange contracts when the time is right, which is ordinarily shortly after signing. The procedure is is usually a five minute process, although where a long "chain" is in the mix, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Hockley)to be in the office available at the end of the phone to exchange contracts.

We are in the midst of selling our flat in Hockley. Conveyancing lawyers are doing their job but we are being charged an extortionate amount by the landlord. So far we have paid £225 for a leasehold management pack and then a further £118 for supplemental queries supplied by the purchaser's conveyancing practitioner.
Your solicitor will not have any say over the extent of the fee for this information but the average costs for the information for Hockley leasehold property is £350. When it comes to Hockley conveyancing sales it is standard for the seller to cover the costs. The freeholder or their agents are not duty bound to answer these questions although many will be willing to do so - albeit often at exorbitant prices disproportionate to the work involved. Regretfully there is no legislation that mandates capped charges for administrative tasks. Nor is there any prescriptive time frame by which they are obliged to supply the information.
